This was a soft-cover spiral-bound booklet of eighty (80) pages, therefore have to scan it in three parts as there are dried mildew stamps, pen and pencil marks, etc., nothing in changed in the pictures nor the artwork. It has been restored as it would have appeared just the first time it was acquired. It was also dog-eared as it was used for reference repeatedly throughout it's life!

Startling Stories appears to have started in the mid-1940s? The artwork is still good in the post-war era, it seems to lag in the early to mid-1950s? These are only the front covers. The last image is from a DVD of 97 issues which were scanned and made into an e-book (electronic-book).

Europeans not only colonized most of Africa, Asia and India and depended upon these troops to defend the Allied Expeditionary Forces as well as the Central Powers in WWI and the Allies and the Axis in WWII. These are some of those uniforms from 1790 to 1960. India and Pakistan kept their former British uniforms and regimental collar and cap badges, replacing the crown with their own national symbols.

The now familiar term khaki was first adopted when British troops were campaigning on the Indian frontier. It was found so valuable in assisting its wearers to take cover, and to conceal; their approach from the enemy, that it became a recognized active-service dress during the early Egyptian and Sudan expeditions, just as it was in the European War of 1914 to 1918.
